In light of our burglary in the wee hours of Sunday morning- which could definitely have been avoided had we not become complacent and lax, and had the forking electric fence around the complex been working- we’ve decided to adopt a couple of dogs.
We’re thinking two females and medium size, as we don’t have a lot of garden. Two because I don’t want them being bored or lonely, and females because I believe they’re smarter and less likely to pee on everything! And we’ll be adopting adult dogs from a shelter- I don’t want puppies I have to train. And they’re going to be outside dogs because I want them to be a deterrent in future, so they’ll have a nice kennel and such.
Any advice on how to settle them in? Only my parents ever had dogs, and my Glugster has had dogs, but they were indoor, lovable, sleep-on-the-bed family dogs.
